How the Point System Works
Why did we upgrade the store?
As technology has improved, so have expectations for instantaneous gratification. Previously, when Commit for Life members used points in the store, it took 4-6 weeks to get your item. The new store will provide you with a better, more rewarding experience. You deserve to have your expectations met, and we want to show you how much we appreciate you.
What is the new point structure?
Whole blood donation: 30 points
Automated donation: 45 points
Automated donation with platelet or double red cell: 65 points
Appointment kept bonus: 10 points for appointments made minimum 24 h in advance.
How can you start earning points?
To begin earning points, you must create a Digital Donor account. You can do so by visiting giveblood.org or downloading our Digital Donor app available on iOS and Android devices. New donors and those who don’t have an account need to create one within 30 days of donating or they will lose their points.
How can you redeem the rewards?
Log in your Digital Donor account and visit the Rewards Store. Ensure you have the updated email address listed in your account. To update your email address, access My Account in your Digital Donor account and select Change Communication Preferences.
Your gift card will be distributed electronically, so we must have your current email address on file. If you order a gift card through the Rewards Store and don't see it in your email inbox, check your junk mail. Be sure and add us to your safe sender list, so you won’t miss any of our updates.
Save Your Store Points
When a donor reaches 15 months with no donation activity, his or her points will be donated back to The Blood Center. Inactive donors are encouraged to resume their donations before reaching the 15-month mark to keep their points from expiring and, more importantly, help save more lives.
Please note: To begin earning points, you must create a Digital Donor account. You can also download our Digital Donor app available on iOS and Android devices. New donors and those who don’t have an account need to create one within 30 days of donating or they will lose their points.
